New to GPX configuration GTX 560

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My old graphics card only had one power connector, my new gtx 560 (Not a ti) has 2 spots for power connectors from the PSU, I have 2 extra cables that came with the card with 2 tails each on them.
Do I plug power connections into both slots, or just one? Both are the same type of slot (the 6 hole kind). and do I have to plug in all 4? What about the 6 pin connector from the PSU can I use one of those instead and one of the spare ones from the manufacturer?
I'm worried I did something wrong, because I will play for like 10mins and then my comp will shut down. Before hand, I had a Blue Power supply light, now my light is yellow which I was told means the power is being interupted. I have a 600w Supply.

both slots, make sure you DO NOT USE extra CPU pins, as they are nto the same.

without knowing the rest of your build, its gunna be hard to say what the exact problem is, (to fill out click on user cp up top, and edit system)

so yes, use everthing to you need to, and plug in both sets. (doesnt anyone read the numbered steps that come with this cards anymore?)
